Looking for somewhere to eat Chinese and picked this one

Some of the reviews sem strange. OK, we had to wait a while for the food but it was quite excellent. Well prepared and delicious, cannot actually say any of the various 'courses' was not very good or better. Can highly recommend it.

Having lived in Singapore from 24 years and recently returned to live in the UK, I was very excited when I discovered Singapore Orchid. My husband and I find most Chinese restaurants in the UK are very disappointing and the food does not taste at all like we were used to eating in Singapore. That is until we discovered Singapore...

My family and I visited on Xmas Eve and had another fabulous meal. The duck dish my mother had was a revelation and could become a favourite. The banana leaf fish was superb, as was the sate tofu. We've never had a bad meal yet and the lychee martin's are to die for. Will return in the New Year.

My wife and I visited this restaurant as we had been here on a few occasions a while ago and had a great time and food. Unfortunately this time we found things had changed. The food was excellent but the service was really disappointing. The owner who had always served us well in the past was totally immersed with the... More

I was very excited to find a Singaporean restaurant near where I have recently moved to, so I decided to go for a quick meal with another Malaysian friend. The young staff serving us was very pleasant & attentive but not very familiar with Malaysian/Singaporean fare. We ordered two noodle dishes from the street food section - we were both... More

I have been coming to this little restaurant since it opened. It is unusual to find a Singaporean restaurant & the food here is authentic and tasty, I particularly like the Steet Food section of the menu. It can be rather quiet at times, but this is a surprise not a criticism as it should be packed. I have celebrated... More

Went in this afternoon for the first time. Brilliant food with an owner who really knows her Singaporean food which is so rare to find in Surrey. Will definitely be back and cannot wait for the next time.

Some things were good, some were not. I enjoyed the duck spring rolls a lot - very tasty and a nice dipping sauce. The satay was also good but the satay sauce had a piece of grey plastic in it, which was off putting. The prawn toast was average - like frozen ones from a supermarket. The duck main course... More
